Primal Scream - Primal Scream Outraged Over X Factor Song Use
Rockers Primal Scream have criticised producers of Britain's The X Factor for featuring one of their songs on the show without permission.
The band's 1994 single Rocks was performed by one of the contestants on the hit TV talent show on Saturday night (22Oct11), but the musicians are adamant they did not "endorse" the track's use.
A post on the band's Twitter.com page reads, "Sorry to hear Rocks was used on X Factor. We don't endorse this... We weren't happy about the use of Rocks."
The band previously complained that the song was played at the Conservative Party's annual conference earlier this month (Oct11) - but they were left red-faced when it emerged the track heard at the event was actually Bohemian Like You by The Dandy Warhols.
